Following their original book, the second volume is described as “less a sequel and more a panoramic wide-angle painting of the biggest youth movement in human history,” shares Velocity. “Book Two charts the rise of dance music over the last 30 years and its connection to western capitalism and culture.”

“Covering topics as wide as drugs, music production, anthropology, the gentrification of the scene, technology, travel, fame, devaluation, inflation, relationships, technique, festivals, rejection, social media, situationism and hypernormalisation; almost no aspect of the last four decades go unmentioned in terms of what we know today as Electronic Dance Music.”

It follows Velocity Press’ release of Junior Tomlin: Flyer & Cover Art in June.
